Did someone get you wet or feed you after dark?

I blame it all on Goddell!

Damn.... I put a lot of thought into that one also lol. I may be able to fix it in the morning, I think my work computer still has the page open with the original version.

I do sincerely apologize. Clearly I had an Obama moment. Rather unfortunate. I've been under a lot of stress lately. It is my only defense at this time...and I'm stupid. There's that too...

Stop apologizing brother. I've done it also, I've caught myself on Tapatalk accidentally hitting the wrong button.

Your forgiven, twice. Go forth and multiply.

Your comment had me reading the Wikipedia link about the Huns. It mentions that the "Huns may have stimulated the Great Migration, a contributing factor in the collapse of the western Roman Empire." Based upon recent DNA data linking the fall of the Roman Empire to an early occurrence of the plague, is it not possible that the "Great Migration" might have been the result of a pandemic, with people abandoning plague infested cities.

PS: Based upon the axiom that an enemy of my enemy is my friend, Attila was a Saints fan. Let's see if you can provide the logic why.

Re: What if?

My gremlin'd post recovered

-----------------------------------------------------

I place no distinction between human and the rest of the animals that populate the earth.

Whales are beaching them selves naturally, and another animal (man) is interfering with natures harmonics. Albeit it is justified cause "they are so pretty to look at"...

Man try's to play God or mother nature, however you wish to see it, to justify his own beliefs. Some actions interfere with nature, some are natural.

Whales found on a beach - Man must interfere!
Woodpecker found in a tree - Man must not interfere!
Homosapien's desire to posses trophy's of Rhinoceros horns - Man must interfere!
Mosquito's breed and reach nuisance levels - man must interfere!
Sharks obliterate populations of seals - man must video and put it on the Discovery Channel.
Coonasses obliterate populations of migratory fowl - man must interfere!

If a herd of velociraptors and tyrannosaurus rexs were found to exist just outside of Detroit do ya think man would let them roam freely?

Man applies his logic as he sees fit.

I have very little faith in either religion or science... They are both someone justifying a paycheck.

Re: What if?

What if these super forest fires that are burning up thousands of acres of our country periodically are man caused and a result from putting out forest fires and not allowing nature to burn off surface debris naturally?

That's not a what it. It pretty much fact. The National Forest Service has documented that the practice of putting out "small burns" allows the fuel (fallen trees, brush, seedlings, saplings, etc.) to accumulate to dangerous levels. Then, when a fire erupts you have a catastrophic event. The attached photograph illustrates the impact of humans on the forest understory.

FYI. Many don't realize that fire "prevention" is also a major cause of desertification. Up until the 1800's large tracts of the southwest US were short grass prairie. Once man arrived and started farming and ranching, the belief was that grass fires destroyed the grassland that the cattle depended on. Unfortunately, the opposite is true. Most grasslands are sustained by fire. A fire quickly burns grassland which can re-sprout from the buried root structure and seeds after the first rainfall. Shrubs, saplings, etc. take much longer to regrow after a grass fire. So, with periodic fires, the habitat becomes an established, regenerative grassland. Man's intervention resulted in the grasslands being overrun with slower growing, invasive species such as creosote, sage, mesquite, etc. that crowd-out grasses. When spring rains appeared the lack of the grass root structure resulted in erosion of the thin top soil, permanently damaging the ecosystem and expanding the SW US deserts. So, fires were actually beneficial to the farmer and cattlemen.

Similarly, fires are essential to sustaining the south Louisiana marsh ecosystems.

Re: What if?

PS: This means that today's big forest fires have little if anything to do with global warming, especially since global warming does't exist except in Al's mind.
